Keep Your Own Damn Fingernails Clean

This is a very good piece on the creepiness of Weezer.  There’s nothing particularly new in it for anyone who has paid close attention to the lyrics of the songs in question, but it’s well done and an entertaining read.  I like Weezer, but there’s definitely an undercurrent of very unpleasant attitudes toward women running through their whole body of work that doesn’t necessarily undermine it aesthetically but does make identifying with it on any deeper level problematic.

Differences

This is a pretty good summary of the differences between Arizona and New Mexico, which despite their proximity are really quite different.  They got the location of Albuquerque wrong on the map, though.  The dot they show is the location of Santa Fe; Albuquerque is further south, where the two interstates intersect.
